1. I LOVED IT!! [Rating: 10/10]
I’m not at all surprised that this drama won awards for Best Casting and Best Screenwriter, among others.

The storyline is very simple. Two very different guys meet and embark on a journey to find their own dreams, while living and breathing the ocean during a fateful summer. The plot for each episode is sometimes not evident, and I’m not even sure if anything ever really happens… but what makes this drama so great is the way the characters develop. I was hooked with the very first episode. By the second, I was already breathing with the characters. Everything about this drama is so real and raw.

The actors and actresses aren’t acting. They’re being. Sorimarchi Takashi was absolutely brilliant, and Takenouchi Yutaka was so honest and truthful. Hirosue Ryoko, whom I’ve only ever enjoyed in Summer Snow, has added another of her dramas to my list of favourites. And Inamori Izumi! My goodness. I’ve found her annoying in everything I’ve seen her in, but she’s definitely redeemed herself with this role. I’ve never felt so dearly for a character as I’ve felt for hers watching Beach Boys.

The drama is not perfect, but I’ve given it a 10/10 because it was truly a pleasure watching such fine characters grow and breathe.

2. A Vacation to the Beach of my Dreams [Rating: 10/10]
My favorite Japanese drama series is Beach Boys. This show has everyone of my favorite actors and actresses. The story is compelling, heartbreaking and uplifting. I laughed, cried, and was inspired.

Takenouchi Yutaka as Suzuki Kaito
I first saw him in Long Vacation and thought that he did a terrific job as the bad boy brother.

Sorimachi Takashi as Sakurai Hiromi
I first saw him in GTO, my second favorite series. I loved it as did almost everyone else, still #1 by a long shot.

Hirosue Ryoko as Izumi Makoto
What a great actress, I first saw her in Long Vacation, she must be either great or magical as she stars in the top 3 dramas I think she is at her best in this one.

Inamori Izumi as Maeda Haruko
My very reason for watching Japanese dramas, she starred in the first drama that I every watched I downloaded it from Usenet one episode a week Pretty Girls If she hadn't been so captivating I might never have checked out more dramas

My only complaint about Beach Boys is that I can't seem to find a decent copy of it. I would glady buy an English subbed version if the company that owns it ever releases it. As for now I'll squint and watch my avi files a couple of times a year, its like a trip to the ocean for me.

3. Simple the best!! [Rating: 10/10]
I guess I can say that this drama is simply the best at a fair point of view because I started watching this drama when I have simply no ideas about Doramas,so I am not saying that this dorama is superb because of the two leads because I did not know who they are while watching.(though I became a fan of theirs after the show).Brilliant cast,brilliant soundtrack and superb sceneries in the show makes it my all-time fave.The story....well..kinda has no plot at all....a 'feel-good' drama,but the attraction of the drama lies in the chemistry between the cast and the very meaningful dialogue used between them.To many people,this show is simply just a drama that's entertaining.However,I guess people who think that way failed to look deeper into the dialogue between the leads...(which is really meaningful and kinda like......makes this drama have a strong storyline despite not having a strong storyline....if you know what I mean...haha)A light hearted entertaining drama coupled with brillaint chemistry between the leads(makes u think whether Yutaka and Sorimachi are like that in real life....I guess they aren't)makes this a must watch for Dorama fans.Not to forget the lovely soundtrack of the show.My personal all time fave!

4. A summer drama [Rating: 8/10]
I shunned away from this drama the first time beacuse I felt it was too slow; all the dramas I've seen at the time were pretty fast paced. But this time I buckled down and watched it and to to my surprise, it was a very well made drama, that is, if you allow yourself to get immersed in it. It is not face paced, and there's a lot of character development since it mainly focuses on the two guys, so that had a lot to work with. It's pretty much a friendship thing between two guys, and since there's isn't alot of conflict, hate, and all those other things found in dramas to spice up the plot, so it's easy to lose interest.
The two leads are both big now, plus Hirosue Ryoko. So in retrospect, it's an all star cast, so it's a real treat to watch all three of them. Overall, a soft, easy going drama that leaves you feeling light hearted.

5. BEACH BOYS IS GOOD Realy GOOD [Rating: 10/10]
Well I must say I realy enjoyed this drama it was a great drama to watch. Takashi played his normal goof off role kind of like in GTO and in Cheap love. He is realy good in those types of roles. Also Yutaka was awsome too. He looked realy young in this kind of differnt then usual he played a business man that was trying to relax and have a vaction and it turned out to last for about 3 months. It is a good summer drama it was great to watch I love the charactors and the actors very much. I would recomend any body to watch this drama. Watch it!! it is a must see.

The first 10mins of the show was hilarious and cheeky. I managed to watch disc 2 and could not continue despite the hunks. Gomen guys!

This story is simple, nearly has no plot at all. But it has a deeper meaning and this whole dorama is very mellow and peaceful. Besides, I always love the beach. The view of the beach is amazing and I like it a lot. I guess this dorama can warm your heart if you really catch the meaning of it.

Great Drama, Great Trio (Sorimachi + Yutaka + Ryoko), and great Vacation. I almost give ten Point but in the middle of this series, it's getting boring to watch, but then it getting interesting again and emotional in the End. For example of boring Episode are ninth Episode the story about Haruko-chan, that's just soooooo boring story for me, i mean this story just ordinary, nothing special, also 10th Episode. But the whole series was great and also the soundtrack, i really felt i was on the beach with them. Sorimachi as Hiromi are BAKA person, i always laugh with his jokes, and also Yutaka as Kaito-san, really calm and warm person. And don't forget the kawaii Ryoko as Makoto (Same name in Moto Kare drama..Zzzz) Cute and energic, her angry face was great, really kawaii (Look at third and seventh Epsiode).
Theme Song: Forever [Sorimachi Takashi & Richie Sambora]: 10 (Great and perfect Song for this drama)

This is also one of the best dramas I like… although it had been quite an old drama by the time I watch it (which is year 2004)… I reali like the setting & the whole part of the drama… esp Takeshi Sorimachi & Takenouchi Yutaka…. From strangers until they became friends… there are a lot of things happen during the process… whenever they appear there are bound to be funny things happen… haha… I can still laugh now when I juz think of the scene… the scenery is another plus point… beaches is one of the places where I like to go to relax myself… Hirosue Ryoko is such a kawaii gal between the 2 men… cute & innocent towards matter… a reali nice gal in the drama when she treats her grandpa so well… of coz the OST is another bonus… the songs suited the flow & mood of the whole drama… reali like the drama a lot…!!!

3. Comments by Sorata [Rating: 5/10]
I really can´t get into storys with no main plot, like this one, the independent episodes killed the dorama for me.
Anyway i can see why people like this dorama so much, the two main characters are really awesome, especialy Hiromi(Sorimachi´s character), he made this dorama much more enjoyable.
And i felt that the Hazuki character was left without a plot of her own, she just appeared in every episode with almost no importance to the "story".
The male friendship is obvious the most cool thing in this, overall it´s a very fresh dorama with some comedy and dramatic moments.

This drama's a lot of fun to watch. I love the constant bickering and teasing between the male leads. They really give the impression of two overgrown boys... until you take a look behind the carefree facade and all sorts of problems and insecurities show up. There's loneliness, responsibilities and running away from your past - and will the two 'Beach Boys' become more than just unwilling co-works in a small beach hotel?
This drama makes me smile a lot and the chemistry between the actors is really great.
6. Comments by DragonSpirit164 [Rating: 8/10]
A fun, light-hearted and easy to absorb drama without a deep storyline. It's about 2 men who spent the summer at a beachhouse they encountered by accident. Each episode focuses on the personal issues of one of the characters in the beachhouse, and how they go about solving it. Takashi Sorimachi is great in this drama even though I don't rate him that much... he added lots of charisma and zest. Great scenery, great soundtrack.

Watched this back in the 90s dubbed in Chinese WITH Chinese subs. So i didn't really get what's going on except for what conversational Mandarin that I knew. But it was enjoyable though, the laid-back atmosphere, kept me watching till the end to relax at the beach. Need to watch this whole series again one fine day... one fine day.. Perhaps it'll get a higher rating then when i understand what the drama is REALLY all about.

This show is about life. It might not be the most realistic show u've ever watched. But it changed my views on life. It doesnt teach u anything, but rather lets u feel its hidden meanings. Its abit like Forrest Gump in that sense. I dont know how to describe this show..but I do love it. I am a happier person after I watched it than before I watched it. If u ever watch any dorama, watch this dorama.

Each trying to escape from some part of their lives, the paths of a drifter and an elite businessman connect at an old beach-side inn. Here they meet others whose lives are just as incomplete. Fate forces them all to eventually face their demons head on as they draw strength from each other in order to find happiness, rediscover their dreams, and to ultimately uncover their live's true paths.
10. Comments by kaonashi [Rating: 7/10]
No complicated plots, no heroic actions & no overdramatic love stories & maybe that's why this one's good. Just 2 guys taking some time off to lay low, have a good time & to figure some things out for themselves & in the meantime experiencing an unforgettable summer. A story about life, in a philosophical sense. Far from beeing one of the best j-drama ever made, but it's good.

GOOD DRAMA. i don`t see why anyone would`t like it. it seems very lighthearted but yet has somewhat deep concepts. i laughed with it, and cried as the story went on. some say they talked too much, but that`s what made the drama good. if you want romance or something totally new, i wouldn`t recommend this. but, if you want a good story and an awesome cast, this is the best!

Oooh! This is a very good drama! It's very homely and "countryside" feeling. It's about 2 guys who accidentally bump together and spend their vacation at a beach house in a small village. 1 of them is a wealthy business man while the other is an easy-going fella. Together, their chemistry is amazing as they teach each other insight of their own unique lifestyles.

I watched the MV first even before I watched the real deal. It's a good friendship story, with lots of life lessons involved. Two different characters that can become good friends, it's hilarious and touching at the same time. Strictly for Yutaka Takenouchi and Takashi Sorimachi's fans, although if you like stories about friendship, you'll love this one!

Sorimachi and Takenouchi are just kakkoii! There is no scenario here, if someone ask what's this story about? it's impossible to answer. It's beach boys, an untemporal dorama, a dorama that makes you fligh, swim, breath the seaside wind. song 'forever love' is great and so corresponding to the atmosphere of the dorama! Great job everybody.

A heartwarming series. Great when you're feeling down or in the mood for something cheerful. Plot-wise, I guess it can get a bit repetitive as each episode deals with someone's personal problem. But still, this is an overall touching series that will perhaps make you feel that life is great after all. Sweet and almost innocent-like.

Relaxing and mellow drama like others have said. I felt a bit let-down by the ending but enjoyed the atmosphere and the sense of togetherness/friendship as they lived and worked together. Some plotlines I thought were too simplistic and not developed enough. All four lead roles were very well-acted though.

Yutaka and Takeshi star in this suitably-named, slow, relaxed jdorama. Also, one of the earliest jdoramas I've seen with a young Hirosue Ryoko. For jdorama fans, it's certainly worth watching to see these earlier roles of some of the more (presently) established actors and actresses.

"Thank you for wonderful summer. We are the Beach boys and girls." Very likely a feel-good dorama with an laidback, worthwhile atmosphere. Hirosue Ryoko acts great. Unfortunately sometimes a bit too laidback, that is too slow. But teaches you a (for some time) desirable lifestyle.

12 episodes of summer, ocean and life... You simply live there, feel everything. One of my most favourite doramas ever. A heart-warming series. Not an ordinary one. The life is wonderful. That's it.

Takenouchi & Sorimachi teamed up! It's a dorama about life & dreams in general. The plot seems easy going but deep & the scenery from the beaches.. oh my... Umi ga daisuki.

Magical show.Takashi Sorimachi acted so well here.Same thing as Takenouchi Yutaka.This show sparked my interest about Japan.And their song "Sing A Love Song For Me" is just heavenly.

One of the earlier dorama which doesn't really feature love, but instead friendship and it really touches the heart of thousands of fans. Joy to watch!

Everybody needs a break, in search for a "sea" of their own. (sea here means world). Funny and entertaining. Nice OST - Forever.

Also one of the first Doramas I've ever watched. The opening song is marvellous, and the cast was, well, stellar enough for me!

Very good in expressing male friendship, and of course, Takashi Sorimach and Takenouch Yulaka looked very good in the dorama
